    6mm 204

    I have got the 6mm-204 up & running.
    It goes surprising well, I have been using Norma brass for developing loads.
    The 75 Vmax go 3175-3200fps
    The 87 SP Hornady go around 3050 fps.
    I haven't finished loads with the 80 GMX hornady yet.

    The rifle I have been using is a T3 Tikka with a TF premium target barrel, fluted bolt, barrel & naturally a Limbsaver, it was on the stock when I got it

    Accuracy is very pleasing, the velocities are surprising with such a little case with only 28-30 grains of powder

    With the 87s in some of the groups it has shown single digit ES, not important at all with a calibre like this, but interesting all the same.

    This would make an excellent suppressed rifle.

    Lol

    Its just tape to try & secure the strain gage for the pressure testing gear a bit better.

    Be nice if it shot that well with isulation tape holding it together

    What's the go with the case, the neck is shitloads wider than the projectile?
    If its guns, tits or tyres it's going to cost you lots of money

    I'm not sure it has been so long since I mucked around with a 243, but it can't be that far behind with 87s at 3050, can't imagine there is much more than 200-250fps in it ?

    Just had a look on the net & it might not even be that much with sensible loads ?

    A nice comfortable load with 95 grain Noslers in a 243 is 3000fps.

    So your 87 grainers @ 3050 proves quite an efficient chambering !

    The price for the T3 Tikka 6mm-204 in this thread is $2880 inc gst

    This includes fluted bolt, fluted TF Premium Target barrel, alloy rail, load development, 100 Norma brass, lightened trigger & all freight.

    Dies are $150

    All the machining on all the rifles I sell is done by professional gunsmiths during normal working hours, with their own reputations & businesses at stake.

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    It's a pity some wouldn't work a bit of overtime so you don't have to wait 4 weeks for a trigger job to be done.
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!
